By

With a culture and history spanning 75 years, Cebu Institute of Technology University (CIT) is a government-recognized academic institution in The Philippines. Private and non-sectarian, CIT was set up with the mission to ensure quality instruction, research, and community extension for the total development of Technologians committed in practicing professionalism and in meeting the demands of local, national, and global communities.

While engineering was one of the first few programs to be offered by the institution, other programs were developed and built upon the successes of the engineering programs.

In comparison with other educational institutions in the Philippines, CIT University features conformant with the ASEAN Qualifications, yet, at a cost that is markedly lower. International students undergo the rigors of higher education sustained by modern urban living while being at arms-reach with the sunny island tourism hubs. In general, the cost of living is affordable. Low-priced dormitories are available around the campus, and all destinations in Cebu Island are accessible by inexpensive transportation. In Cebu, the shopping destinations are some of the best in the ASEAN.

Filipino and international cuisine of low prices are in abundance; the people are not only world-renown for hospitality and friendliness but also can converse in understandable English since the Philippines is a former American colony with education institutions using English as the medium of instruction. Moreover, international students enjoy an inclusive culture that is welcoming all races, religions, cultures, gender, and the entire gamut of human diversity.

developed learning framework referred to as MADE 4 Learners, a framework that defines the various teaching-learning modalities in both in-person and remote synchronous and asynchronous engagements or a combination thereof. MADE 2 SUCCEED is a component of MADE4 Learners that enables learning SUCCESS of students through a flexible learning platform in a safe and secure environment. At CIT University, the US model of Outcomes-Based Education is also referred to as an all-encompassing framework, and English is used in administrative transactions and as the medium of instruction.
